Pink Ribbon Day for Breast Cancer Foundation

October is Breast Cancer Month and Monday 27th October is Pink Ribbon Day, signature day of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. A day to raise funds for the ongoing research into a cure for breast cancer, along with the celebration of the wonderful achievements to date in this quest. You can contribute in many ways including participating in the Dove Pink Star Walk on Saturday 25th October, hosting a Pink Ribbon Breakfast or simply buy an actual pink ribbon or related merchandise from participating retailers. The statistics state that one in eight Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 85. When you speak to your friends, you will usually always find that they will have known or know someone who has had breast cancer, myself included, so this is a wonderful charity to support.
